727 Cakerie (Highland Centre Yio Chu Kang)

AsianLocalSingaporean
717 Trading started out from a small stall in a market in Ponggol in 1973, selling only a few baskets of durians and some other fruits a day. Since then, 717 Trading began to diversify its business and have retail outlets islandwide to provide cakes and pastries to customers.

The Best Durian Crepe

Over the years, I've tried so many durian crepes from different establishments ranging from Goodwood Park to Puteri Mas but I've to say I've never looked back since discovering those from 727 Cakerie.

What sets this apart from the rest is that they don't add too much cream into the durian filling so when you bite into the crepe, it seems like you're sinking your teeth into the real fruit. Perfect for those times when you don't have time to enjoy the real thing!

The shop is nothing to look at but I usually just pop in to takeaway some for the family. Apart from the one time when I bit into a sour one, I have no other complaints about their stuff.

Oh, and do try their durian puffs too!

Still Not Too Late

The durian season is ending but it is still not too late to catch something here. Tried the "Mao Shan Wang" which was creamy although abeit darker yellow and more bitter than what I am more accustomed to. Also had the usual D24s which were just as bitter. All in all, great quality durians in a place where you do not get cheated.

I also tried some genetically modified rambutans which had shorter "hair" and in which the aril comes off easily from the seed. Interesting but given that I grew up on the more traditional fruit it just seemed a little too strange for my comfort zone.

One issue to note is that 717 Trading might not be very accessible for one without a car. Service also tends to be rather slow even on a quiet night. While not cheap, prices are generally quite fair. Also, while they sell durians all year around, prices tend to vary depending on demand so if you want to catch the last parts of the durian season you better head off soon - like tonight!

Durians Galore!

Had a durian pig out session here with fellow durian lovers, hoongy! and ratatouille. Although we only had 3 durians (2 D24 and 1 mao shan wang) in total, but that was enough to satisfy our cravings and seriously we were kinda stuffed after 3 whole durians. :)

Cold packet water is free flow and free for taking if consuming durians there. Tissue is available on each makeshift table for use and there is also a wash basin in front of the shop for washing hands. Just need to approach the staff and tell them what durians you want to eat and then just sit down at the table to wait. The staff will bring the durians over and open up in front of you. Its really great to sit around a makeshift table in front of the shop facing the quiet Yio Chu Kang road and just gorging on durians.

Clientele range from families to the teens where they just chit chat over durians.

Should really have another session here, but with more ppl next time. :)

Note: Other tropical fruits like mangosteens are sold here too.
